SCHUMANN: Overture to Die Braut von Messina (“The Bride of Messina”)
BRAHMS: Violin Concerto
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 7
The Music Hall grand opening season closes with a flourish of musical fireworks. Beethoven’s jubilant Symphony No. 7 was an instant success, further solidifying his stature among his musical heirs, Schumann and Brahms. Schumann’s lesser-known and eloquent overture to Die Braut von Messina (The Bride of Messina) sets the stage for Brahms’ romantic Violin Concerto, featuring the “effusively lyrical” (The Guardian) violinist James Ehnes.
The CSO's three-year Beethoven symphony cycle, paired with works that are a modern mirror to his influence.
